Written by T.M. Gaouette | November 9, 2013
Hey sweet PI Girls. Here on Project Inspired we’ve had extensive discussions about body image.
So many teens are influenced by what they see in the media, and much of what society deems “pretty” or “normal” or “perfect” is dictated by the media and celebrities. It’s not easy to remain confident if we feel we have flaws or differences.
Now meet an amazing young woman who never allows those around her to determine her worth. In fact, she has inspired many people through her acceptance of herself.
Take a look for yourself.
Ladies, Patience Beard simply has a great attitude. She understands that in cases such as her own, you have to accept the way you are and “just go with it.” And in doing so, you become an amazing inspiration for others.
So what did you think about Patience? Did she inspire you?
